AACSB ACCREDITATION, THE DETERMINANT OF UUM AS THE EMINENT MANAGEMENT UNIVERSITY

The visit from AACSB PRT will be the last crucial step for UUM in its efforts to obtain the prestigious accreditation. The process of obtaining the accreditation which began as early as 2008 started off with the process of drafting and documentation of academic syllabi of courses offered by the various Schools under the auspices of the College of Business, Othman Yeop Abdullah Graduate School of Business (OYAGSB) and Department of International Business, School of International Studies (SoIS), UUM College of Law, Government and International Studies (COLGIS).

UUM Vice-Chancellor, Prof Dato' Seri Dr Mohamed Mustafa Ishak said that the impending visit from the AACSB PRT is important because it represents the final phase of which will determine the position of UUM as the Eminent Management University in the eyes of the world and place it on par with the best business schools worldwide.

"We need the AACSB accreditation because UUM ought to be placed amongst the best universities in the world that offers studies in the field of business and management.

"To date we have received international accreditation for the Bachelor of Business Administration (MBA) by Association of MBAs (AMBA), and if UUM is able to obtain the AACSB accreditation, it will definitely be more meaningful because this accreditation encompasses a much broader scope , both the undergraduate and postgraduate level which would put both programmes at the international standards, "he said during the launching of the AACSB Month held at the Foyer of the Sultanah Bahiyah Library yesterday.

He added that at present there are about 727 business schools from 45 countries around the world which have been accredited while in Malaysia only two universities have successfully acquired the accreditation namely Universiti Putra Malaysia and Universiti Malaya.

Hence, he expressed hope that the UUM members of staff involved during the AACSB PRT visit will give their highest commitment in the efforts of obtaining the desired accreditation.

AACSB or The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, established in 1916, is the oldest international accrediting body for business schools at universities which offer Bachelor, Master and PhD programmes in business and accounting.

The accreditation process which involves strict internal review, evaluation, and adjustment can take up several years to meet the standards set by AACSB International. The launch of the AACSB Month is a strategy to compile inventories and boost awareness amongst the campus community of the importance of this accreditation to UUM.

At the ceremony, Vice-Chancellor also launched the Quality Assurance Manual (QAM) for Academic Staff.

The first of its kind manual which was developed by UUM Institute of Quality Management (IPQ) is the result of the Vice-Chancellor’s desire to have a guide for the academic staff in performing their duties as a lecturer, researcher, and consultant. The initial version of the manual is expected to help the academic staff of UUM COB, especially in helping them cope with the AACSB review.

The event also included an aerobics session which was led by Mr. Jamil Mat of the UUM Arts and Culture Centre with the aim of promoting a healthy lifestyle and exercise activities amongst members of staff.

Also present at the ceremony were members of the University Management Committee (JPU) and senior university officials.
